60% fat and vanilla extract
There isn’t much frugal cooking going on here now. I am on a low carb and an amazing 60% fat diet for a few weeks. This means I am having a lot of (expensive) protein and very high fat meals, not really anything I can blog about. I made some (low carb) celery soup today that has a huge 250ml double cream in four portions! Wow! It was delicious and not something I would otherwise have had.
Something today that was frugal is the vanilla extract I made way back in November 2014. I made new husband another Raisin Tart, recipe in yesterday’s post. He really liked the last one and I feel a bit guilty that I’m not cooking for him much. One of the ingredients is a bit of vanilla, so I found the extract and gave it a sniff. Oh me oh my! It smells wonderful! Much nicer than anything else I’ve used. If you haven’t already made any, it’s something I would definitely recommend. Nicer, better quality and very cheap.
